, distinguished guests from the community, city family, all of us coming together. last year we held a pilot project on stockton street to help the merchants and support the merchants in selling their merchandise. we were able -- we were very successful. we got a lot of great feedback from the pilot. so this year again, we are doing the second year of the pilot. all the agencies and the community and the merchants, we got together, and talked about how we can do better. and without further delay, i will ask the mayor to come and say a few words, who is a big supporter of this project. mayor lee. >> thank you mohammed. [ applause ] >> i am very happy to be here. is this okay? all right. all right. [ laughter ] all right. first of all, happy new year to everyone. this is what i'm looking forward to every year and i know the merchants and residents and all the small businesses are excited. a year ago board of supervisors president david chiu and i and members of the community discussed how we can continue the economic vitality of the city and clearly we registered a big support for small
when you were in dc getting us excited about our national stamp; really our national culture could be reflected for everybody in america. this is a wonderful opportunity yet again and i know this is the sixth stamp? sixth in the second series. i'm glad to be joined the board president david chiu, our new supervisor norman yee district 7, and rod sengera postmaster general for the san francisco bay area. i see the wonderful beautiful designs that ken mack has for our stamp,a reflection of our cultural heritage. i want to thank the representatives of chinese companies and many others witnessing this to unveil this again. we are getting ready for the new year. as people know we are finishing up on what i think is one of the most exciting years that we have had with the year of the dragon. you know as well as i do that so many things happened, somewhat miraculously whether the world series or on our way to perhaps a super bowl, and even the economic recovery. i kind of thing from our own culture that it had something to do with the alignment of some great fantastic events t
for people is inside or outside the room? >>> outside. the use of the atm is done in the vestibule itself. >> but it faces kind of sideways, not toward the street? >>> exactly. >> okay. it sounds like it helps at least with the signage not facing the street. and i think you're hearing that people don't want the signage necessarily of the atm [speaker not understood]. >> yes, i understand there is concern about the number of signs we put on the buildings. the amount of blue illumination. i will certainly take that strongly into account when we design the signage package of the building. * >> commissioner antonini. >> yes, mr. sanchez, i think i've seen that decision from '54 many times, justification for discretionary review. it goes on to say it is a very sensitive discretion that has to be used with extreme caution, restraint. but in any case, the much larger issue in regards to the sign and color issue is design in general. you go to a lot of places in some communities, even other fairly large cities, and the formula retail establishment, banks and others, are very tastefully done in th

staffing. >> thank you. >> next speaker. >> thank you supervisor for allowing us to speak today. my name is nancy rock and the vice-chair of the san francisco women in action. we serve women, families and children in need in san francisco and throughout the bay area. i am here to reinforce the support you have given to the department on the status of women and we use a lot of their materials, reports and services. so we're expanding what you have allocated in terms of budget, and expanding that to a larger audience when we give our programs, we use their materials. we do that, because they can be trusted. there is a lot of stiff stuff on the internet and i can tell you when we use a report from dosw, the information is accurate. and we know there is accurate information portrayed to the people, and again, thank you for your support. and we'll continue to pass on the information that they give us, because again, we can trust it. and we hope that you know that we trust you and we really, really do appreciate this. thank you. >> thank you, next speaker, please. >> good afternoon superv
to be the leader in bicycling use >> thank you supervisor mar. i want to assure that the streets will save for all san franciscans especially for those who are on bicycle >> and this weekend i made my bicycle trip on the market south neighborhoods and i wanted to know first hand the use of bicycles in our cities. the capital improvement program represents all modes of travel in our city. so to look at just san francisco as a whole won't tell the whole story. recently, we applied for bicycles plans with the transportation authority. those 3 projects alone show improvements including millions of dollars in our bicycle network. i understand we applied for another million dollars for our city. those put together total millions of dollars in improvements and alternative the maintenance mount is projecting that their 5 year bicycling plan will increase of about 1 hundred and 18 percent. as you noted we have drafted the bicycle strategy and we know the improvement that are required to make san francisco a major city for bicycling identified in this strategy. lately i annunciated in my city address along
it's a nonconforming use and, therefore, it is what it is. but -- and it's attached to -- i suppose it doesn't have to be attached to cafe floor. it could be an off-site kitchen for another restaurant, i assume. so, it could -- someone else could utilize it. as long as it didn't change use, it can stay where it is. but if it did, then the whole thing goes away. that said, i think there appears to be full support for the staff looking at expanding the legislation to include what commissioner wu just spoke about. but i'm uncomfortable in doing that because this has not been vetted before anyone and the community and the merchants associations and everyone else were looking at a specific application for cafe floor. but i think there's another discussion that needs to be had with the community groups about expanding it all over the upper market area. and for us to take a vote on that i don't think is appropriate. >> so, are you, commissioner sugaya, removing that portion of your -- your portion of the motion? >> no. i'm saying staff should go ahead with that. and it would go through the
the supplemental chu and the rest of us is proposing is really in line with the family dealing with violence if our communities. i'm grateful for this balanced approach. the budget and analysts offices recommended that i feel like adding this money to communities legal services makes a lot of since. money will go to legal outreach and other number of community based community providers. other programs are critical but this is a balanced way to approach this and money will go to immigrant and others who are victims of domestic violence. you want to thank supervisor cohen for making this happen >> thank you very much mr. president. i first want to thank the folks who had worked on this issue. i think we've seen part of this has to do with the d b.a. community making folks feeling safe from domestic violence. for many folks in this situation is hard for people to do. i will be supporting the underlying principle. it's no sprieps i'm not supportive of some of those programs but it's very important that we send a message to the community that i am against the domestic violence. i think that no matter w
have imperfect information. we don't have all the information that we need in front of us to really understand the economic impact of today's proposal versus what we had in the legislation coming to us? i want to be able to move the conversation forward and hopefully next week not delay moving this out to the full board. >> if you make the amendment today, you can rescind the amendment and go back to the current language next week without additional. >> why don't we do that? >> okay. i won't be supporting the amendment today, if there are further conversations over the week, that may change, but i hope that my colleagues on board will respect the feelings of the constituents. >> being no further comment, madame clerk will will you call the roll. >> on the plosion of amendments, supervisor chiu? >> aye. >> supervisor kim? >> no. >> kim, no. >> supervisor wiener? >> wiener aye. >> there are two ayes and one no. >> that motion passes. [ gavel ] >> then i guess regarding the final peace on grandfathering, is it better for us to take the amendments today and rescind them t
. i see her, wave at her, say just a second, crack our machine which i use, wasn't going through. i get a ticket in the mail for that instance. i pulled out my waybill which proves that i worked, documented perfectly. the copy of the credit card receipt, submitted that with a fluffy narrative about what happened. insufficient evidence. there has to be some type of congruence there. thank you, sir. >> next speaker, please. >> mark gruberg followed by [speaker not understood] zamud. >> mr. gruberg. >>> again, to continue and conclude along the lines i was speaking of before, despite the fact that the cpuc has a rule making proceeding going on, you still have jurisdiction over people who are providing illegal services in san francisco that are, you know, the equivalent of taxi services. if you didn't have that jurisdiction, you couldn't stop somebody in their private car who was picking up on the street either. so, all the drivers in these companies which are violating the law, the drivers themselves are also violating the law. and i'm not suggesting that, you know, a $5,000 citation.

up with the idea that maybe we could simply expand the sidewalk by allowing everybody to use the sidewalk properly, but that the storefronts could have some additional space to offer their goods, when the chinese new years is happening, and when people are wanting to buy all the things that they want to do to celebrate the new year's and to come down here and be safe. so this pedestrian expansion of our sidewalks was the idea that came forward. we piloted it last year as mohammed explain and thank you to dpw's great work, the pilot was successful. it was successful all around, particularly with our small businesses, particularly with our chinatown youth center and the people who are here to protect pedestrians. all the agencies got back in a very enthusiastic way to say we can do it better this year and get everybody's involvement. so it isn't just the pressure on the police department, that says we got to be safe. it is everybody working together on the front-end to produce an experience that is positive for everyone. so i want to thank supervisor chiu. i want it it thank
the man choirian okay was used in this champ better because it was softer and they could carve it better. and it reflects what the city's about. it's more about the finer details rear than the rough objectives that you are focusing on i see you folksing on bike theft and don't worry about the equestrian horse theft stolen right from under the city and not one supervisor did anything about it. that is theft of a magsive scale and for the president of this board of supervisors to get up and say that this type of activity is going to be transferred to the state and to the rest of the united states well, we are in for a lot of big trouble. because my culture just doesn't disappear. it doesn't disappear from san francisco it doesn't disappear from california it doesn't disappear from the united states you folks may disappear but my culture doesn't. thank you. >>. >> thank you next speaker? >>> my name is eugene gordon jr. and we dress for democratic party leadership for over two centuries over constitutional law gave states right so they would not be confused with federal law and in

. it was impressive the level of data they have and how they're able to use it to try and increase safety on the buses. so, i'm wondering do we have or will we be getting that same level of data for bike and pedestrian safety? i know it's not as easy to gather since i think a lot of those muni calls either involve the police or are 311 calls. but it would be interesting to know if that same level of data exists for bike and ped because it can help in our safety quest. >> we can ask [speaker not understood] reiskin. >> one other item. i feel that from our day long strategy meeting that we may have left some sort of hanging unanswered questions from staff, particularly on the bicycle strategy where on the last page we were asked if we wanted to ask staff to focus on hot spots or corridors. and we don't -- obviously can't stay with us. discuss it today, but i wonder if we need to come back and retouch on that. * it occurred to me on this weekend when i was riding that we have a bike strategy, we have a pedestrian strategy, but we don't really have a corridor strategy yet, which i know will evolve out of

to us that if the request as proposed here was approved, that there is likely to be an increase in prosecutions and trials, and there could be a supplemental request by the public defender for additional positions for parity. similarly, if the district attorney does prosecute more cases and more cases are sent to probation and to jails there could possibly be a ripple effect with probation and the sheriff. moving to our recommendations i would note question of 11 positions would result in 100% in the d.a.'s domestic violence staffing. to 22 positions and cases from the police department have decreased and 18.5% in domestic violence cases charged by the d.a. in 2010-2011. the d.a. is advising that their caseloads are actually increasing primarily due to the increased number of trials, particularly for the misdemeanor domestic violence trials. moving to the recommendations. they are summerized on page 20 of our report. to both address these additional caseload concerns that are occur right now,ring right now in addition, to the dropping of the cases dropped by the police departme
